Making Me Smile


I have been kind of down in the dumps lately. Trying to shake this funk. Let me tell ya- Bennet the 3-year old jabber mouth is exactly what I need. Here are some of the things that she's said the last couple of days to make me smile.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At the baby shower on Saturday she sneezed. She looked at me and said, "Mama- when I sneezed a little pee came out. A little pee came out Mama"


Somedays it is adundantly clear that she is my daughter.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Mama- I give you a hug and kiss and then you'll feel better" Proceed to hug and kiss. "See Mama- all better!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whenever I leave the house for work or a day on the road Nick says "Drive safe. Stay away from the bad guys"

This was the conversation this morning as I was leaving for work:

Scene: Bennet’s eating cereal as she wishes her Mom well for the day. Scout is in the high chair smearing yogurt on her face with a spoon.
(I have interpreted Bennet’s “speak”)

Bennet: Stay away from the bad guys mom…

Me(K): You want me to stay away from the bad guys?

B: Yeah… No bad guys near the car.

K: Ok. I won’t let them near the car.

B: Yeah… *words words words* bad guys – stay away – no near the car. They come near the car, no, no, no.

K: Ok I will.

B: If bad guys near car you shoot em.

K: You want Dad to shoot the bad guys?

B: No. YOU shoot em.

*laughter*

K: Ok B, I will. Bye –

B: Those bad guys won’t survive.

Somedays it is adundantly clear that she is Nick's daughter too. He was so proud.


There is always a silver lining no matter how gray the cloud.

You need to do a "things you say" lo featuring a few of your favorite Bennet gems. She is so darn cute!

I did one for Addy, and everyone Addy included) gets a kick out of looking at it and seeing the cute, funny, inexplainable things she has said.
